IDP Consensus Rankings Analysis: Week 14

Every week, our own Jeff Ratcliffe, Ross Miles, Mike Woellert, and Eric Yeomans give you their rankings for each of the three IDP positions.  In this column, I take a look at their ranks and discuss my thoughts on where they agree and disagree.

Defensive Linemen

Yet again, J.J. Watt tops our defensive linemen rankings.  Jason Pierre-Paul, Jared Allen, Elvis Dumervil, and Justin Smith are to follow.

Facing the all-generous Cardinals offensive line, Chris Clemons should be in for a nice week.  Our No. 12 ranked defensive linemen this week, Clemons has an impressive +22.6 pass rush grade so far this season and should make life difficult for the Cardinal’s passing game.  On the same note, Bruce Irvin has a great opportunity in front of him as well; however, is a very situational player.  Only 65 of Irvin’s 305 defensive snaps have come against the run this year, explaining his 2 solo tackles on the year as well as his rank of 52 this week.  Irvin is only worth a start in sack-heavy scoring formats as a result.

    Anyone relying on PFT to set your lineup beware of this article. “My sleeper pick this week is Bruce Carter, who did not receive a rank this week.”??? He did not receive a rank because the writer’s colleagues know he is out for the season. I’d be wary of advice from anyone who plays IDP and did not know that. My son knows that and he is 4.
